Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Your hormones play such a critical role in your body’s basic functions that an imbalance can lead to a number of different health concerns.
Hormone secretion is the language your body’s cells use to communicate with each other. Through these secretions, they coordinate your:
- Immune system function
- Reproductive development
Hormones can even transform your body, as they did when you were a teenager and went through puberty.
So what happens when your hormones fall out of balance?
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement therapy can be used to help those whose hormones have fallen out of balance.
This treatment can help with a number of different issues, including:
- Easing the symptoms of menopause
- Insulin resistance
- Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
- Adrenal fatigue
Bioidentical Vs. Traditional Hormone Replacement Therapy
The difference between bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and the traditional methods is that the bioidentical hormones are derived from plant estrogens which are chemically identical to those found naturally within the human body.
Traditional hormones are synthetic hormones produced using a number of different methods.
